carl hanging the mail

Mail was picked up and delivered to Malakwa by train.  This photo shows Carl Bertholm hanging the last mailbag for a moving train to pick up.  The last mail delivered and picked up by train was in the summer of 1965.  Carl worked at the Malakwa General Store and Post Office.  After this delivery, mail was brought to the Post Office by truck.

Building in the background of this photo is the Malakwa Section House.
